Fire Your Ministers Nursing Presidential Ambition-CITI GM Boss

Chief Executive Officer of Citi FM/Citi TV, Samuel Attah-Mensah (Samens), has advised President Akufo-Addo to fire all his ministers and appointees who have made their covetous desire to be Presidents known.

While speaking on Citi TV, Samens pointed out that these wannabes are very likely consumed with their desire to become flagbearers of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 2024 and therefore cannot properly focus on their Ministerial jobs.

 “What I find wrong is the fact that you have an agric minister who wants to be the next president, who probably is not focusing on his work at the ministry. I think that the people who are in such positions who have declared that they want to be presidential candidates, the president should remove all of them from office, starting with the agric minister,” he said.

The NPP is nursing a looming implosion as President Akufo-Addo steadily completes a second term in office as President and party leader.

Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, Trade Minister, Alan Kyeremanten and Agric Minister, Dr. Akoto Afriyie have all come up as people interested in contesting for the 2024 presidential ticket of the NPP.

But the contest is likely to be between Alan Kyeremanten and Bawumia, a contest that will run the NPP’s Ashanti and Akyem fault lines since Kyeremanten is an Ashanti and Bawumia is seen as a stooge and a puppet to extend the hegemony of Akufo-Addo’s so-called Akyem Mafia.

“They should be removed from office so that they can concentrate on their campaign and the bid to be president so that people who want to help the president to achieve his mandate can come and do the work,” Mr. Attah-Mensah said of all the wannabes.

Recently, President Akufo-Addo fueled the raging speculations by jokingly telling the overlord of the Asante people, Otumfuor Osei Tutu ll, that he was aware that both Kyeremanten and Akoto Afriyie are angling to replace him as president.
